Video: Mike Shapiro Interview

Magazine cartoonist and caricaturist Mike Shapiro is interviewed by Arlington Weekly News (AWN) Anchor Dr. Pia Salmre.

This is an informative, short interview (it runs 4:47) with Mike Shapiro, a fellow magazine gag cartoonist whose work appears in Barron's, Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review and other publications. Mike is right when he mentions that the more you draw, the better you get. He alos points out that you have to read a little bit of everything; you have to be aware of what's going on: trends, popular culture, buzzwords -- all this is part of the writing process of being a good gag cartoonist.
